    As a company, Apple is consistently strong. The iPod market is maturing slightly, and they won't ever have 50% sales growth year-over-year again, but as a company, Apple has strong sales rates, and has great prospects in the phone and computer segments, with somewhat lackluster CE inroads (excluding the iPod)



    Apple's volatility is due to having a CEO who runs a company by his own intuitions and biases.

    I absolutely did! Thanks. I just hope this doesn't turn into a partisan debate as evidenced by a few recent posts:

    Come on dude!!! Are you actually going to blame one administration? And as far as deregulation, its been slowly happening in every industry, regardless of the administration. S&L was just another example of why it doesn't always work. Energy crisis in California was another example.

    Which resulted from the Johnson administration's misguided policies,



    which inherited Kennedy's mistakes,



    which were...



    Absolutely. We will forever be correcting the mistakes of the past and creating new ones.

    You need to chill out big guy! Take a deep breath and focus. And then a deep breath again. I'm not an investor. I'm 21. Yet I've been following it really close the last week and here are some overall simple rules to follow that I have picked up:



    1. Buy low, sell high. By far the easiest way to make money.



    2. Buy the hype, sell the news. AAPL always skyrockets before an event, slumps the months in between. Next time, buy in January and sell in mid June. Buy back now. Repeat.



    3. Don't speculate. You will get bitten 85% of the time (talk to your local subprime lender for advice on this one)



    4. Most importantly, DO NOT SPECULATE ON AAPL, unless you follow the simple rules above.



    5. Don't whine when you get bitten, the market has always rebounded. Always.



    6. Buy low, sell high.



    7. Uh, and patience is a virtue too.



    I think that's about it. It's probably laden with sarcasm, sorry 'bout that, it's late. Lastly, all the sophistication in the world won't help if you lose the simple things. And keep your cool under pressure. It's the thing that will make or break ya.

    Where are the mod's is my question? There have been a bunch of threads like this hanging in FH for over a week that have no business in FH. People just keep putting them in here because they think it's common practice. If the mod's don't start policing the forum with some degree of concern again it's going to stay totally stupid like this. What happened to the order around here? It's a freaking nightmare. We are surrounded by people that can't even start a thread correctly. It's driving me up the wall.
